$14 Million Jury Verdict Against Hyundai Overturned

The Virginia Supreme Court overturned a $14 million jury verdict and entered judgment for Hyundai, concluding that plaintiff’s expert lacked a sufficient basis for his testimony that an airbag would have deployed had the sensor been located in a different spot on the driver’s side door. The expert had never tested his hypothesis that the sensor would have worked had it been moved to his chosen location. [3/12/15]
